Healthcare Policy in Trump Administration to be Focus of UTD Event

The University of Texas at Dallas Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management will host a free panel discussion Feb. 6.

Day by day, the health care industry is changing, sometimes at the drop of a tweet. Disruption will be the industry norm for quite some time as legislation, leadership, and practitioners struggle to keep up.

The University of Texas at Dallas Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management will address some of these looming issues at its free panel discussion, “Healthcare Policy in the Trump Administration.” The Feb. 6 event at Naveen Jindal School of Management on the UT Dallas campus in Richardson, will feature:

  • Stephen Mansfield, PhD, has been president and CEO of Methodist Health System since 2006. He has held senior leadership positions in health care for about 20 years. Under his guidance, Methodist Health System has doubled in size and experienced its most profitable years in its history. Methodist Health System has repeatedly been named one of the best places to work by Dallas Business Journal and in 2015, the American Heart Association gave the system its Platinum-Level Fit-Friendly Worksite award.
  • Andrew Coats, senior policy adviser with Hall Render in Washington, D.C., practices in the law firm’s Federal Legislative and Regulatory Advocacy and Government Relations and Public Policy groups. He is also a principal in Liberty Partners Group, a lobbying firm in Washington, D.C. Coats is son of former U.S. Senator Dan Coats, who was nominated in early January by President Donald Trump for the post of director of national intelligence, to succeed James Clapper.
  • Michael Burgess, a U.S. congressman who represents the state’s 26th district, which includes Tarrant and Denton counties. Burgess was first elected in 2003, after almost 30 years of practicing medicine in North Texas. He is member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and chairman of the House subcommittee on health; and member of two other increasingly important subcommittees on digital commerce and consumer protection and on oversight and investigations.

The Feb. 6 program, cosponsored with the Richardson Chamber of Commerce and moderated by Britt Berrett, director of the Jindal School’s bachelor of science in healthcare management degree program, will also include a Q&A. RVSPs are required, although the event is free.
